The AT Blog //
Our blog is curated by the AT team, with a select group of friends and music aficionados also contributing content. Driven by the same passions as the label, we aim to give some much-deserved publicity and promotion to music and artists that can otherwise go uncovered and indeed, undiscovered by the more mainstream, trend driven press.
For us, the blog is a platform to showcase and celebrate the creativity and vision of musicians, artists and bands that we love, whilst giving us another opportunity to support new or emerging bands and artists as much as possible.
We hope you find something you like.

Sacramento, California is the home of dark rockers and recent singing to Cleopatra Records Creux Lies, made up of singer Ean Clevenger, guitarist Barry Crider, David Wright on synth/electronics, drummer Topher Snyder, and bassist Kyle Vorst.
